Repair bills always suck, be they for cars or for planes. Plane bills tend to suck exponentially more, just because they can. And money's getting tight right now, so another bill I did not need. But the Cessna needed a bit of work to fix a significant front gear vibration on landing so I bit the bullet and taxied it over to the shop today.
I lucked out. In and out of the repair shop for less than a hundred bucks!
Shimmy damper rebuild. Fixed, fixed right, and fixed cheap. I love my A&P shop!
